Summer Schools



Read what recent students have to say about their experience at our University of Kent Summer Schools in Paris, Brussels and Canterbury

Paris - Revolutions

It was most inspiring to learn about and explore the theory behind the ideas and then apply them directly to the city itself; this led to many exciting discussions and debates and allowed me to view the city in a way I wouldn’t otherwise have been able to

Joseph Robinson, Paris 2017

This is a great opportunity to directly engage with leading scholars and have an interactive classroom experience. I valued the international atmosphere and exchange of ideas between fellow students and academics – I could ask questions and get detailed answers that I wouldn’t usually have in my everyday university study

Emma Lagerstedt, Brussels 2017

’Seeking such a unique introduction to Paris was fantastic and we were importantly encouraged to find our own Paris. It was amazing to learn about Paris through philosophers, writers, painters and scientists; importantly I learnt that Hemingway was right…Paris does stay with you and I can now see myself living here’’

Sara Kilian, Paris 2017

I was able to have one on one conversations with the lecturers who were extremely captivating and interesting, especially during the Revolutions in Science seminar which was a highlight for me. The lecturer made me want to change the world’’

Chloe Ching, Paris 2017

The field trips and exercises allowed us to go beyond the classroom walls and experience the various issues first hand. The individual speakers brought their own wisdom and style of expression showing their passion for their subjects

Jeuty Thakur, Paris 2016

Being able to interact with the lecturers on a subject they were so passionate about was a new and valuable experience for me. I have learnt so much across so many disciplines and from the amazing people that I have met. A truly unique experience which brings you out of your comfort zone

Sophie Joint, Paris 2016

Come with an open mind, good walking shoes and ready to indulge in the French culture and cuisine like never before! I will be finishing the programme sad to say goodbye and a whole pants size bigger!

Helena Gougeon, Paris 2016
